Microsoft’s CFO explained how LinkedIn and Minecraft are part of the company’s strategy
At a Fortune magazine event earlier today ahead of Microsoft's big product event tonight, the company's CFO explained its strategy for buying up companies like LinkedIn, GitHub and even Minecraft developer Mojang.
The company has been one of the largest, most active and highest-profile acquirers of late, and Microsoft CFO Amy Hood boiled down what the company is looking for in deals like those to this simple strategy: For the past five years, she explained, the company has been consistently looking for communities. Also for things like "networked assets," plus growing markets and opportunities where Microsoft would end up being a better owner for the company being bought.
